Fire Engine Photos
West Sussex Dennis Rapier.
This is (R336 SPO) a Dennis Rapier/JDC Water Tender Ladder of the West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and is the 2nd appliance at East Preston Fire Station which is a 2 pump Retained station.
This photograph was taken on Sat,15th August,2009 the day before the stations Open Day on the Sunday. The day was marked down for the Saturday (Wrong),but my visit on the wrong day actually was a bonus because both appliances were parked outside,and good for the photo-shoot.
